About the Manager
I bought the land in 2003 in a hormonal post divorce moment, and despite Hurricane Ivan, which devastated the island of Grand Cayman one year later in 2004, I never once regretted the decision. I have always dreamed of building a beautiful triple aspect house on the ocean. So I designed Christmas Palms (it started life on the back of an envelope) and finally - after much planning, begging and borrowing - managed to break ground in May 2009. This picture was taken at Over the Edge restaurant in Northside, Grand Cayman, just after (with equanimity and no regrets all round) I had ceremoniously thrown my wedding ring into the sea!

Christmas Palms Review
There was a constant breeze (sometimes real wind) so bugs were not an issue, which we loved.
I would recommend this home but as with all vacation rentals there are the cons. There is no beach giving easy access to the water. The only sand is on the property. The area below the house is very rocky and not easy to walk. While there is a small water access area to the right of the property but with the surf, gaining access is difficult to go snorkeling. My husband did and found it hard to get around in the water due to waves and rocky areas.
I would recommend you get the beach shoes from the local dive shop. While expensive made beach walking and dealing with some of rocks easier. The house is very close to the road but the traffic noise was not an issue.
There is no housekeeping provided with this rental. We wanted the sheets and towels cleaned and the floors swept. We treat the house like it was our own. Cost is $90 US for 3 hrs minimum. A bit pricey but she did a good job. We have rented many homes on different islands and only one other time did we have to pay for housekeeping at this price range. I guess this is the Cayman way.
Overall it was a great get away and would recommend Christmas Palms.
Review of Christmas Palms
We stayed for 5 days at the Christmas Palms in the Grand Cayman. The home was in excellent condition with 180 degree view of the ocean. The four bedrooms, four bathrooms home was what were needed for a family of five. The home had all the amenities of your personal residence while being on a beautiful tropical beach. The pool and patio area were great for sitting and watching ongoing fishing boats while relaxing with a drink and dinner. The privacy was great while being nearby to two of the major resorts within a five mile radius.
We took tours of the bay, and snorkeled at the edge of the reef just to find that the best snorkeling was in the back yard of Christmas Palms. We saw Sting Rays, Barracudas, Lion Fish, eels, and all the variety of Caribbean species.
The location was close to many gourmet restaurants, or if you wanted to buy groceries and create your own meals the store was five minutes up the road.
The home is centrally located with famous rum point beach five miles west of the location. We made a day of it, the resort at Rum Point has restaurants; water sports equipment rentals, and a full functional beach.
The home is about eight miles from George Town and Seven Mile beach great areas for tourist type activities.
10 day stay at C. Palms
Exquisite vacation getaway!
If you're looking for a little seclusion and/or to getaway from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown this is the perfect location!!!!
From the Owner
“It is quiet, private and beautiful up here on the North Coast of Grand Cayman. It is well away from the noise of Seven Mile Beach, yet within easy distance of the supermarket, diving facilities, trips to stingray city, botanic park and at least half a dozen excellent restaurants, including The Lighthouse and the fine dining at Rum Point. The best of both worlds.”
